Harrison Weir (1824-1906), known today as an English natural history artist, was also an animal fancier who painted dogs, cats, and poultry, as well as breeding and judging these animals. He wrote and illustrated Our Poultry and All About Them (1903), which focused on poultry popular in England. The editors used Weir's illustrations from that volume while shifting the focus of this book to breeds popular in the United States.
